I need some advice because I’m going a little crazy.
I paid a friend from college to do my wedding video back in October.
Shortly after the wedding I was given an estimated completion date for February.
February came and went and when I asked, he was unable to give any further estimates. I have gotten some sneak peaks of the video, but still no date for when it will be done.
The last time i contacted him about it was exactly a month ago. I dont want to be annoying and keep asking him, but would like to see the video.
Do i bring it up again or just forget about it at this point? I just have this feeling that if I’m not asking about it, hes not working on it.

do you have a contract? If so, did it have a due date?

YOU PAID HIM and it’s effing August. Bother him every day. You’re right, he’s not working on it. I’d guess if you never asked for them again you’d never get them. Good luck, bee. Sorry your friend is a massive jerk.

Not that this should matter, but how much did you pay for the video? Did he give you a massive “friend” discount? Here’s the deal, if he never gives you the video, in my mind the friendship would be severed. I would not want someone like that as a “friend”, with that said, I feel like you have nothing to lose by “annoying” him with the request of your video. I would be flat out blunt and demand it be done asap. And if he cuts contacts or if he gets angry or what have you, well then cut your losses, but he CLEARLY has no consideration for you or for the relationship. I am so sorry this has happened to you. That is just awful. Does he have a photography business or does he just do this on the side? This is precisely why I will NEVER do business with a friend I have learned the hard way myself unfortunately.
